3d scanning, cnc milling, mold making, and casting

































We've been having fun in my casting course lately. The students are reinterpreting the cameo and making some new work utilizing 3D scanning and CNC milling. They learned how to scan and then how to use the Taig CNC to mill high density foam for making plaster molds for slush casting wax. Then they learned how to make investment molds from the waxes for lost wax/centrifugal casting. Students then have to combine these cast components with fabricated components. I'm anxious to see this new work in it's completed state.
